Fashion Crime

Yes!! I made it home.  I got down to the seaplane terminal for the first flight and luckily they left on time!!  Okay, BUT. Walking home from the terminal I saw 2 opportunities to hand out fashion citations:

1.  Bad outfit/Big Smile
Lady wearing tight capri's (?) that ended ABOVE her knee, with knee high boots and BARE knees... not even any tights or anything.  I must admit, I am almost guilty of the too short capris/boots look myself, but this is just not cool. BUT she looked like such a happy person and walked confidently with a big smile on her face. Definitely gets bonus points for the personality. Now lets work on the outfit.

2.  Great outfit/Scowling
Next, I saw way off in the distance, this really striking red head with a beautiful pink wool fitted coat and  gorgeous soft grey tights and grey ankle booties. I was just about to comment on her outfit as she came closer to me and she had the biggest scowl on her face I have ever seen.  I waited and looked again and she still had it.  I even waited abit longer and looked again, and still had it... OH too bad.  I considered that maybe if I complimented her it could boost her mood but to be honest, I was too scared to!! LOL
Points for great outfit, but in my books the scowl ruined it  (disclaimer: yes, she may have been having a really hard day- I'm just going on quick pass here :).

As you can see, I actually do have, thanks to Cinderita, an official Fashion Citation note pad.  Luckily I havent had to give out any citations yet.... did you hear me??? YET... be careful, don't make me come over to your blog with one.. hah hah kidding of course!!!

GOOD TO BE HOME!

  3. oh Jodi, you would so give me a Fashion Citation these days! Because of school, I have been practically living in all black, and what's worse is I've been really lazy about it! Boo me!! But good news is that I start a new job on friday and it's in a physio clinic so I actually have to look presentable to the public! Yay for getting to wear cute clothes again!

  4. It is amazing how a scowl will ruin a perfectly good looking outfit!! So sad....Your outfit on the other hand looks great! The fashion citations crack me up...I could hand them out all day long, but only because so many women in my age group have given up...bad clothes with a scowl!!

  5. Welcome home! And what a good point about how attitude counts for as much as clothing.

  8. That scarf looks wonderful on you. If I wear a scarf like that, I'm afraid it just comes off looking a bit like a boa constrictor...or maybe just a boa (maybe worse in the wrong setting), but either way, I don't know if I can pull it off so well. Glad you're home!

  10. You look fabulous in that dress and scarf combo!

    OMG, I had such a laugh with a co-worker yesterday when we saw a woman wearing off-white tights, NOT leggings, with visible whiter granny panty, no tunic, nothing to save it at all, just wandering about. Where are those citations when you need 'em? D'oh!

    Thanks for making me laugh again!

  11. Oh my! That is too bad about the red-head, her outfit sounds gorgeous :) As is your outfit! Glad you made it back safe and sound! To answer your question about when I took that photo yesterday, I actually didn't get any rain in my city during the day, I think it was from the ocean breeze or something?

  12. Seriously a smile is the best thing you can wear. even in mom jeans it's inviting.

  15. That's hysterical! I think I am guilty of a couple of those fashion crimes!! BTW, I love that drapey gray dress. Looks so cozy!

  16. OK, I have so much to say so I'll try not to ramble!

    Your outfit is gorgeous: the all gray with the red scarf is really lovely on you. Kind of feel like I NEED gray boots now.

    I am so with you on the second citation: you can be dressed beautifully, but if you've got a scowl on your face then no way.

    Love the pad!!!
